what happened here with syria's news these days. investors are on edge over the possibility of a u.s. military strike on syria. any time we have geopolitical or war-related issues, you're going to see investors hit the sell button and pile up on assets that are more safe. it's the reason that investors were buying up gold and treasuries and then you go ahead and roll into the market's already nervous about when the fed is going to pull back on its stimulus. so you factor in any type of unrest in the mideast, it just adds to the anxiety. oil prices closing up 3%, closing at $109 a barrel. syria is ranked 32nd among global producers but the concern is there could be this risk of a spillover, if neighboring countries get involved. if we could see a ripple effect, we could see oil prices rise even more and that could translate to higher gas prices for consumers, john, who are already watching their pennies. >> all right affecting us here, allison kosik. >> the obama administration sounding more hawk-like by the day. it's not waiting for inspectors to conclude whether syria killed 1,300 p
